 Photo Comment:  The Google Satellite Image shows the Best Western motel circled in yellow.  The railroad tracks as well as the what you can consider St. Helen's train yard is seen to the right side of the picture.  This picture shows the yard empty, but you can find cars in the yard normally.  This is a former Northern Pacific branch.
